Cloud atlas by Tom Tykwer( Visual )
27 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,049 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sechs Erzählungen verschachteln sich zu einem fabulierfreudigen Kaleidoskop von der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts bis zur fernen Zukunft, in dem alles permanent miteinander verwoben und parallel gesetzt wird. Die opulente Reise durch Zeit und Raum, Epochen und Moden, Gedankenwelten und Weltansichten verdichtet sich zu einem bildgewaltigen metaphysischen Abenteuerfilm, der von den Höhen und Tiefen der menschlichen Zivilisation, von Gewalt, Macht und Machtmissbrauch erzählt und den freien Willen des Menschen, seine Bereitschaft zu Mut, Freundschaft und Vertrauen feiert. Das intelligent-unterhaltsame Spiel mit Verwandlungen und Masken verbindet geschickt filmische Genres und jongliert mit historischem Seefahrer-Drama, 1970er-Jahre-Thriller, kulturkritischer Farce, Kunstfilm und dystopischer Science-Fiction-Oper."
